WATCH VIDEO: This is why you shouldn’t give money to beggars

WE have all seen them – the pitiful souls at the traffic lights, begging for your spare change.

And while you may be tempted to hand over a couple of coins in the hopes of making a difference, you may in fact be being conned.

According to our sister publication, Centurion Rekord,  video footage showing a man pretending to be crippled and playing on motorists’ sympathy has been doing the rounds on social media.

 No doubt there are many people with genuine disabilities who need all the help they can get, but this chap from Cape Town is not one of them.

The footage  shows the man changing his walk – twisting his legs and hand to make them appear deformed.

He can be heard saying he is the best in the ‘best in the world’
